Healthy Haven Step 10 - Have Healthy Snack or Easy Meal Ideas on hand....

Here is a great list of ideas for what you can eat when you need something quick or are on the road…..

FRESH AND DRIED FRUIT:
My personal favorites are bananas, apples, pears, dried dates, dried figs, watermelon, peaches, nectarines and berries. Make them easily available for grabbing….a large bowl in the center of the counter filled with colorful fruit is great for this purpose, and the added bonus is that it looks beautiful!

HOMEMADE TRAIL MIX:
Raw almonds, cashews, pistachios, pumpkins seeds, brazil nuts, and walnuts are also great to have on hand. You can make your own homemade trail mix by mixing diced dried fruits with these nuts and seeds, add some rolled oats and coconut flakes in there and take with you in a small traveling pouch. Putting the trail mix on coconut or goat milk yogurt is even better…

CARROTS AND CELERY:
Bite size carrots are life savers for everyone. With almond butter, they are even better. You can also fill celery with almond or sunflower seed butter or pumpkin seed butter, put raisons on top and we are talking pure deliciousness…

CABBAGE WRAPS:
Green cabbage leaves can be used for a wrap that holds slices of raw goat cheese with mustard and diced fresh herbs drizzled on top.

VEGETABLE AND SWEET POTATO SOUP:
Vegetable and Sweet Potato soup made with diced carrots, celery, onion, green and red cabbage, and 1/2 inch chunks of sweet potato are amazingly hearty and filling and comforting to have in the middle of the day for kids as a lunch or a snack.

OATMEAL
A bowl of oatmeal with almond milk, walnuts and raisons, drizzled with maple syrup is also amazingly satisfying…

BANANA ICE CREAM
My all time favorite is frozen bananas blended up with almond milk….adding a dash of liquid stevia and cinnamon makes it an all time tops.

SPROUTED GRAIN
Sprouted Grain Toast or Muffin or Bagel with either Organic Butter, or Avocado and Sea Salt, or Hummus, on top are easy and quick to make….

HARD BOILED EGGS
And don’t forget about simple hard boiled organic eggs with sea salt sprinkled on top….Yum!

YAM FRIES
Yam or Sweet Potato Baked Fries are sweet and yummy with ketchup and mustard…You can use the same method on beets, parsnips and turnips….

QUINOA PASTA SALAD
Make a Quinoa Pasta Salad by mixing cooked Quinoa Pasta noodles with chopped sweet red bell pepper, green onion, tomato, zucchini, cucumber, parsley w/ a dressing of lemon juice, extra virgin olive oil, dash of sea salt and black pepper…..Put it in a to-go dish and go!

Enjoy!
